Icberg Announces Land of the Vikings, a City-Building Strategy Game!
New Demo and Trailer will go live at Gamescom 2022.
Developers Laps Games and publisher Iceberg Interactive are excited to announce Land of the Vikings, a city-building strategy game set in the Viking era coming to PC via Steam. Early access will be available on Q4 2022.
In Land of the Vikings, players take on the role of the Jarl of a new Viking village. A wise Jarl must manage resources, survive harsh conditions and enemy raids, and guide their fellow Vikings to work together through social conflict. It is up to the players to expand their village into a thriving city. But they are not completely on their own; the Norse gods will aid players with different bonuses in return for their worship.
Who will survive the north? Prospective Jarls can put their leadership to the test in the first public demo of Land of the Vikings. The demo will be available during Gamescom 2022.
Manage your hoard
Chop trees, plant and grow crops, hunt wildlife, mine and fish from the surrounding seas and fjords. From victuals to Vikings, manage your resources carefully to ensure you can outlast the winter, and expand your settlement season to season. Each of your villagers is a character in their own right. With 20+ characteristics, your villagers might be powerfully-built strongmen and women or silver-tongued thespians. Pay attention to skills and abilities when assigning your people to a task. Not all Vikings are alike, nor are they equally good at all jobs!
Know your Vikings
More Vikings will ask to join your settlement as it grows. You can choose to welcome them or turn them away. Over time, your Vikings will begin new families and give birth to new generations, extending their lineage and strengthening your village.
Survive fierce weather and events
This land will bring many challenges to your settlement, from earthquakes to fire-starting lightning from the heavens above. Band together and withstand these disasters as best you can. The seasons bring their own challenges, as do events and disasters. Be ready for storms and blizzards, or just the long deadly cold of the winter season. Prepare firewood and food stores to keep your Vikings warm and fed!
Trade and raid
Your neighbors are an excellent resource for goods and gold. Once you build a Trade Dock, ships will visit you with various cargo. You can also send out your own trade missions, as long as you have enough villagers to crew the vessel — and enough beer to fuel the crew! But any good Jarl knows that force is the best path to glory. Raid foreign villages to plunder their gold and silver, and gain Fame points. Train and strengthen your Vikings to ensure your victory.
Celebrate and decorate
No grids allowed! You can build wherever you want, design your village as you feel like, and increase your Vikings’ happiness. Construct monuments to Odin or Freya and customize the look of your Viking ships. You will even be able to modify the look of houses with the Building Editor, in one of the Early Access updates!
Yggdrasil, the tech tree of life
Unlock new buildings and bonuses by spending Fame points in the Tree of Life. Discover beer brewing and build a Tavern for your villagers to relax in. Invest in goat farming to gather wool and weave fabric for better clothes. As you create better quality living and resources, your Vikings will become healthier and happier and your settlement will flourish!
